What do AZ Thespian Alumni do?

As Arizona Thespian Alumni, our goal is to be the first responders to any challenges that may arise while volunteering at State Thespian Festival. We also have the opportunity to explore the festival, stay involved, and provide the best security so that all participating students may be safe at all times. Volunteering to be stationed throughout the festival to supervise and oversee the various workshops and booths allows us to provide all attending an experience they will never forget! 

Our Mission

Arizona Thespian Alumni is dedicated to supporting theatre arts education through community building, post-graduate involvement, and volunteering at all-state events.
